Is Qudian under- or over-valued?

Valuing Qudian stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Qudian's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Qudian's P/E ratio

Qudian's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Qudian shares trade at around 1x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Qudian's EBITDA

Qudian's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.6 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Qudian's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Qudian shares

There are currently 3.2 million Qudian shares held short by investors – that's known as Qudian's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 3.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Qudian shares can be evaluated.

Qudian's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Qudian's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Qudian shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Qudian shares traded daily (recently around 933038.6627907). Qudian's SIR currently stands at 3.44. In other words for every 100,000 Qudian shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3440 shares are currently held short.

However Qudian's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Qudian shares, or, against the total number of tradable Qudian shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Qudian's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Qudian shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Qudian shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Qudian.

QD.US volatility(beta: 1.01)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Qudian's is 1.0051. This would suggest that Qudian's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
